    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Macquarie Group (New York, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was called for an initial screening by an off-site hiring consultant. We spoke briefly about the position and to see if I was a good fit for the role and the company. After about five days or so, I was contacted by the hiring manager to meet in Manhattan for an interview with two members of the team.

    I met with both gentlemen and we spoke briefly about the role and my desires that were geared toward this specific role. As an entry-level position with no real experience necessary, they did not delve into nor desire to hear much regarding my schooling nor my experience as a post-grad.

    Given the position, I would have more than likely taken it, but I felt like I was not welcome very much from the beginning. My answers to their questions never really seemed quite up to snuff and I felt quite debased each time I answered. I've had a variety of different experiences on interviews, but I'd have to say, this wasn't the best one by any stretch.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Macquarie Group.

    Interview

    Interview process is very long and includes personality/logic/math test. Very unorganized. At least once the offer came in everything was pretty clear. This is to get my answer to the 30 word minimum.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Macquarie Group (San Francisco, CA) in June 2019.

    Interview

    Began with recruiter phone interview, moved on to interview directly with SVP. Was sent case study for a potential investment and asked to put a valuation on the asset based on publicly available materials ie 10-k, press releases, franchise agreement, etc. Scoring on this assessment was HIGHLY quantitative and original insights from the data were expected.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Macquarie Group in July 2009.

    Interview

    Process is just too slow and long. 4 rounds of 1:1 interviews. Thought it was a great experience at start until it became such a tedious process. Had total of 4 interviews, 2 with the same person and the remaining with different people. Plus a 3 hour test with personality questions and other questions that did not relate to the job I applied for. I thought that the test was a total joke and did not get to finish it.

    Reasons for Declining

    Received the offer from this job but by the time I received the offer, I had already started and accepted another job offer.
